Intention: To say goodbye to the things you have lived with, but are now giving away. Props: Soft brush, box, cologne, thank-you note. Ritual flow: 1. Pile up all the things you’re planning on giving away. 2. One at a time, pick up each item. 3. Brush it off with three strokes. 4. Say thank you and goodbye. 5. Pack it carefully into the box. 6. Spray your cologne once onto it. 7. Wrap the box like a gift and include a thank-you note to the thrift store associate who is going to unbox it.
